Did You Know?
I have always thought Ed Wynn
was the world's greatest comedian, and I still think there is nobody that has ever been as funny, or will be, in my time as he was in his heyday.
He met his future wife Mary Livingstone
while he was appearing at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, and he regularly ate across the street at the lunch counter of the May Company department store, where Mary worked as a lingerie salesgirl. Jack Benny actually first met his wife Mary Livingstone in Vancouver British Columbia when he was appearing there, possibly at the Orpheum there as well.
Often used the phrase, "Now cut that out!"
